    Alright i dont have much time now so ill edit this in an hour, keep checking back.

    Lets say you want something, i dont know maybe Winterboard.
    Open cydia and let the main screen with text pop up.
    search it in cydia.( bottom right )
    typing may seem glitchy but its supposed to be that way.
    scroll up and down and search for winterboard.
    when found, click on it and look at the top right hand corner, it should say install.
    then a new page will pop up and in the same spot were install was, it will say confirm. click that.
    Then it will download with a blue bar and stuff. after it will say compressing file ontop of the blue bar.
    then it will say reloading data, at this point just wait however long it takes, it usually takes 30 sec to 5 min depending on what your downloading.
    now its winterboard so it will say reboot, that will reboot your ipod.
    Usually it says "return to cydia", "respring", or "restart"
    you have spirit so you dont have to worry about connect to itunes or having to reboot with the program.

    thats pretty much it for downloading stuff.

    when searching for stuff, blue text for the title means you have to pay for stuff.

    Adding sources allows you to get new things people have on cydia.
    to download a source, go to manage on the bottom of your screen, then "sources" and then a list should pop up with a bunch of sources.
    to add one in the upper right click "edit", then on the upper left click "Add"
    adding a source is like adding a URL Address to your computer.


    ( search, already on Cydia, dont need to add!!!!) Search for this.I recommend downloading "steffwiz". when done. go back to search and look for "All Sources"
    these will give you a bunch of useful sources.

    Heres some of the stuff you can look for on cydia

    Oh snap, save your ECID!!!!
    To do this open up cydia and let the home page stuff load.
    Then click "Make My Life Easier".
    At the top of the cydia homepage, it should say "Pending TSS Request"
    After a few days, it should say "Ecid For Iphone OS XX Backed up" or something like that.
    doing this will allow you to downgrade in the future if you have an Ipod Touch 3rd generation 32 or 64 GB
    Heres basically the tutorial, you dont have to add the codes in the first section unless your about to downgrade:

    at what page do you get this, the download page?


    umm i forgot, i think you just try it out again later, connection to router may be slow to go closer. Its prob 75% that you should retry in maybe 30min.

Then screen will turn into "black" and then you will see "Running" and "Downloading libhide" and then it appearts "http://apt.thebigboss.org POSIX:Operation timed out" and then click bars comes with it saying "Okay" and then "http://apt.saurik.com POSIX: Operation Timed Out" appears and then an "Okay" click bar appears again. After that another ""http://apt.saurik.com" with the "Okay" click bar appears again. Another prompt appears again "http://apt.saurik.com POSIX: Operation Timed Out" with the "Okay" click bar appears again. And another prompt will appear 4 times "POSIX: Operation Timed Out" with the "Okay" click bar appears again.
